This book volume is rich in details as to the customs and manners of three centuries. Precise and luminous strokes tell the story of Commencement and Class Day, with punches and without; of institute and Hasty Pudding; of Porcellian and A. D. and Pi Eta and D. U.; of Navy Club and Med. Fac.; of boating and baseball and football. Always the dominant influence has been of Bostonian wealth and family; but, even in the most puritanical times, it has been high spirited.
